Summary of Geneva Town Hall (May 17th 2017)
On May 17th 2017 at Webster University American Citizens Abroad Global Foundation (ACA) conducted their annual Town Hall event working towards their mission to educate, advocate and inform.
A panel of professionals in tax, legal and financial planning issues affecting overseas Americans presented on a variety of practical topics and answered dozens of questions for the over 80 attendees at Webster University.
We thank Ken Freshman (KLR), Guillaume Grisel (Bonnard and Lawson) and Jonathan Lachowitz (ACA Board Member) for their contributions to the panel. Jonathan also presented an extensive update on ACA’s activities working on behalf of all overseas Americans and specifically to work with members of the US Government to educate them on the issues and to encourage better legislation.
ACA would also like to thank the several sponsors of the event as well as the many participants who helped to raise well over $5000 that evening towards ACA’s funding of the scoring of our Residency Based Taxation proposal.
We look forward to several more town hall events this year in September in Basel and Zurich and in London (TBA). ACA Event information can be found here: https://www.americansabroad.org/aca-
